Happy Almost-New Year!

It’s early evening here, and apparently this sleepy little skiing village turns into a madhouse on New Years Eve. We skied all day for 2 days in a row, and we’re feeling the pain. I always think I’m in decent shape until the first couple of days of exertion. Of course the beauty of skiing [...]

December 29th 2005

Ok, I ended up being compelled to update from here. We’re several hours into Canada, at a favorite ski resort and we just got back from the dinner/torchlight ski.
I wish I could describe the whole thing perfectly, it was so beautiful. Even just taking the lift up, the whir of the lift carrying us fast [...]

December 26th, 2005

Hey everyone! Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas, if that is something you celebrate. As for myself, I do celebrate it and did have a beautiful day with friends and family. I love having a house full of people and bustle and laughter. We ate far too much, played games and watched a couple [...]

The Next Longest Night of the Year

It’s close to midnight, the girls are all asleep. I just kissed Elliott goodnight, and now I’m sitting here typing, watching snippets of television. I can’t believe it’s only 2 days until Christmas.
I know not all of my readers celebrate this holiday, but indulge me as I grew up with it. My life, up until [...]

December 22nd, 2005

Went to the post office the other day to get the mail, and I found in amidst the Christmas cards a letter from prison. I was pretty sure inmates didn’t get to look at porn on the internet, but in this case the person was writing to ask me to send “a copy of my [...]

Dec. 21st, Solstice

Last night I was exhausted. Between getting things going here again and the holidays, I guess I’m getting a bit rundown. I don’t know why, but it’s far more exhausting for me to work in front of a computer all day than to do something physical. Teaching pilates, even being on my feet all [...]

December 20th, 2005

So the other day I had a very brief conversation with a friend of mine, Monk, about the movie Hostel. You may or may not have noticed that the movie is currently advertising here on JanesGuide, for a January opening. At the time Monk said he thought the trailer looked totally kink-negative. Admittedly, I am [...]

December 19th, 2005

We’re back from a wonderful weekend with family. I’m trying to get bits and pieces of things done from home, since I have way too much to do here. Jack just called from the new co-lo center to tell me he got my old server installed. For the past 6 years or so JanesGuide [...]

December 16th, 2005

I hate to say it, but I’m just in and out of here today. No time to do new reviews, post anything, or even answer much email. We’re out of town at 5am tomorrow morning for Elliott’s family Christmas weekend, which is way up in a snowy cabin in the woods by a lake. That [...]

December 15th, 2005

hey everyone! So, I here are a couple of photos from the other day’s entry, about that beautiful restaurant Elliott took me to. The one is the view I had during dinner – the strange glowing object in the middle is the outdoor heater. The other is one he snapped of me. See, I [...]
